Missouri Ed-Fi

DESE is excited to announce the upcoming pilot of our new Data Validation Portal (DVP), which will help automate the time-consuming and manual effort that local education agencies (LEAs) currently use to report data in the MOSIS Data Collection System. With this new tool, LEAs will soon be able to leverage an automated sync of their data directly from their local student information system (SIS) vendor, using the open-source Ed-Fi Data Standard.
